smells sweet and too much like apple juice...taste is sweet...but not quite so much like apple juice..little plum taste in there perhaps? smooth, good carbonation....quite a good taste...but feels a bit thick like corn syrup in the mouth...couldn’t drink a bunch...you’d have a diabetic coma!!

Apr 2012 - very sweet - tastes like pop, doesn’t taste like beer at all so it’s hard to compare it to other beers. Not great.

VoodooBear (42) - San Juan, PUERTO RICO - MAR 10, 2013
Presentation: 11.2 oz. brown bottle served in a stemless, oversized wine glass. Appearance: Thin 1/2 finger head that fizzles out into a thin ring that stays ’till the end, and it leaves some great lacing. It’s a cloudy, bright yellow color. Smell: It has a simple, very sweet and pleasant smell. A mix of malt with red and green apples. Taste: The sweet and sour taste is great and something that’s not found in any other brew. The sour of the green apples dominate, but it’s balanced nicely by a red apple and malt sweetness in the background. Mouthfeel: Creamy and medium bodied with very little carbonation. It’s light and very easy to drink. Overall: Despite the sweetness on the nose and palate, everything feels nicely balanced, surprisingly. This beer is not cloying at all and doesn’t have that candy flavor that turns away a lot of people from these types of fruit beers. It’s great, very simple and refreshing. Proof that a good beer is not just about having a thousand flavors crammed into a bottle.

Tmoney99 (10080) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 5, 2013
Bottle. Poured hazy yellow color with an average to large frothy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Medium to heavy yeast, green apple aroma. Medium body with soft carbonation and sticky texture. Medium sweet green apple flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Complex strange apple beer.

Floris Apple. Hazy light yellow colour with a little white head. Aroma is a bit chemical. Taste sweet. Not bad, but nothing special.

DavidWoodruff (387) - Windsor, California, USA - JAN 14, 2013
Pours like a cloudy cider.Aroma of crisp fresh apples. Tastes like apple juice mixed with artificial sweetener. Short, sweet, apple-cooler finish. I absolutely find no beer element present.

worldbeertaste (1548) - AUSTRIA - JAN 13, 2013
Hazy gold with a fizzy lasting white head. Smells of orchard fresh apples. Nice sweetness. Medium thin body with lively carbonation. Tastes like a cider with a malty base. Sweet and juicy with an apple sour on the finish. Nice.

DuffMan (6156) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 30, 2012
Bottle. Hazy medium golden, short-lived head. Intense apple-candy aroma and flavour, like Jolly Rancher candies. Sickeningly sweet.

jandd1983 (2085) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - DEC 22, 2012
It poured a hazy golden color with small white head. The aroma was of apples when the bottle was opened, a little spiciness and apple juice. The taste was of apple juice with clean finish. Decent.

Cloudy light gold appearance; It has a faint smell of green apple, flower and white wine; small head, which is better than Lindemans Apple; light body and watery; Taste more like apple juice, with white wine taste not apparent, a real minus; Very sweet, no hop bitterness at all and nearly no tartness; It has a funny cholocate taste towards the end!

Comments: I looked forward to taste it, and I was let down, bad. Definitely a few pars below Lindemans Apple. It feels just like drinking apple juice instead of fruit beer, so why bother making it? :(
